Mountlake Terrace Residents,
How many of you signed your name to a 30-year mortgage for your house without doing a walk through or at least seeing the plans/design of what you were buying. That is what the City of Mountlake Terrace is asking you to do on the April 23rd ballot.† They want you to vote “Yes” for a New Civic Center. They have not only asked you once, not twice but will be asking you again for a 3rd time to approve Prop. 1 without providing any plans/designs of what we are buying.
I am asking you to think long and hard. Without making changes after the August failed attempt to get this passed they are using scare tactics of raising property taxes, diminished police enforcement, and cutting city services.
Councilwoman Wright is quoted as saying, ” I think the citizens of this city really donít have anything to complain about when you come right down to it because they can always move to another city that has more problems. I think that I like living here. And weíre on the verge of getting a city that is the envy of the whole state, and I really, really want to be alive to see it happen.Ē http://mltnews.com/councilmembers-put-it-on-the-line-for-voters-civic-center-needed/
I am asking, why any of us that she represents in this city would have to move just because we don’t agree with her.
Vote “NO” on Prop. 1 and let’s send the Mountlake Terrace City Council a message that we cannot be bullied into building something we cannot afford right now!
